Integrated Intraoperative Optical Coherence Tomography for Pediatric Lamellar Corneal Transplant Surgery
Developments in Ophthalmology
Integrated intraoperative anterior segment optical coherence tomography is an extremely valuable tool that can be used by corneal surgeons when performing pediatric lamellar corneal transplant surgery. This chapter will demonstrate its use in infants and children with a variety of corneal diseases. These diseases include congenital corneal opacities such as Peters' anomaly (both types I and II), surgical management of limbal dermoids, and its use in selective corneal transplant surgery such as DALK (deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty) or DSEK (Descemet stripping endothelial keratoplasty). These techniques could be used in children with anterior corneal scarring or storage disorders, such as mucopolysaccharidoses, or posterior endothelial disease, such as congenital hereditary endothelial dystrophy or posterior polymorphous dystrophy. This chapter will demonstrate the author's experience using this device during anterior segment corneal surgery.
